Comfort Station and the Logan Square International Film Series along with Chicago Filmmakers
Presents:

From the Archives of... Ron Slattery


"From the Archives of..." is a new series of programs designed to highlight the work of passionate collectors, personal archivists, and relentless documenters from the Chicagoland area. We're kicking off the series with a screening of motion pictures from Ron Slattery. Ron is a flea-market fiend, an eBay expert, and almost certainly the most jovial collector you'll ever meet. Born and raised in Oak Lawn, Ron bounced around the West Coast and the Midwest doing various jobs before realizing that he was happiest back home in Chicago digging through good old American detritus searching for the gems - like the photography of Vivian Maier (Ron was one of the two people who re-discovered her now famous work). He also runs the website bighappyfunhouse.com, which updates daily with new photos from his extensive collection of vernacular photography. This screening promises to be a ridiculous and entrancing evenings of mystery films in every format Ron can find!
